CASEd Thank you card

Mynette, over at On a Stampage is setting up an exciting new weekly challenge blog which will be known as Inkspirational (where does she get it from??)  and she's looking for a DT.  If you are interested hop on over to her blog and look at the 4 card challenges Mynnette has set us. My card today comes from her first DT 'tests' and it is a cased card. Here is the original.
 and here is my version, do you think it's close enough? I inked and coloured the flower parts before joining them with a gorgeous fabric covered brad, which I'd been saving for a special occasion!
I embossed the panel of the same pink card stock as the flower and matted onto basic grey and made a little extra sentiment using my Sweet Cake stamp set. I cut the oval by hand as I don;t have the right size punch, can you tell? I added leaves originally to the flower but took them off as I felt they 'disturbed' the pink and grey colour combo.  As a finishing touch I scored a frame around the card.
I hope Mynnette likes what I've done with her card


  1. This is awesome, Louise!!! LOVE the flower and your dry embossed panel is fabulous! Gorgeous!!! Thanks for joining in my DT call! Good luck! :) Can't wait to see your other creations! ;D

  2. A lovely choice of colour - are you feeling better yet? - Jacqueline xx

  3. I love your pink and grey colour scheme Louise and the flower looks lovely without leaves. I notice from Jacqueline's comment that you've not been feeling 100% , hope you're feeling better now. Vicky x
